Since losing to uber-prospect Edson Barboza in his UFC debut, Lucas Martins has now won back-to-back fights in the octagon. He rebounded from the Barboza loss with a third round knockout victory over Jeremy Larsen at UFC on FX 8. Martins then dropped two weight classes to the bantamweight division, and ran through Ramiro Hernandez, earning the submission win in just a little over a minute into the opening round at UFC Fight Night 28.

Top ranked bantamweight, Aljamian Sterling, finally signs with the UFC following a perfect 8-0 record to begin his career. Notable victories include a decision win over flyweight prospect, Sean Santella at a CFFC 11, and a first round submission win over Joel Roberts last November.
